The Repco Supercars Championship returns to the north of Queensland for the NTI Townsville 500 on the Reid Park street circuit, the sixth round of the 2023 season.
Following a surprising set of results last time out in Darwin, the championship battle resumes amongst ongoing parity debates with the Chevrolet Camaro having won 14 of the 15 races held in 2023.
Erebus Motorsport’s Brodie Kostecki leads the championship by 59 points from teammate Will Brown, ahead of the Triple Eight Race Engineering duo of Broc Feeney and Shane van Gisbergen. Chaz Mostert is the best-placed Ford runner in fifth place, though the Mustang runners are losing touch in the championship race.
After first wins in Darwin, Team 18 and Matt Stone Racing will be out to continue their strong run of form, with Brad Jones Racing and PremiAir Racing the only Chevrolet teams yet to win a race in 2023.
The NTI Townsville 500 features two 250km races, with the grid for each race set by a single qualifying session followed by a top 10 Shootout.
